Chelsea to freeze season ticket prices as contract talks with two key players continue

New Chelsea owners, Todd Boehly and the Clearlake Capital, have reportedly decided to freeze season ticket prices again. The move comes after a poor season on the pitch, which is set to see the club finish outside the European spots.

As per a report by Matt Law, Chelsea have decided not to increase the season ticket prices for the 12th season running. The general admission areas would remain priced at £750 per year (cheapest ticket), lower than Tottenham and Arsenal’s cheapest option.

Manchester United, Liverpool, and Aston Villa have announced that they will increase the season ticket prices from the 2023/24 campaign. Arsenal are also increasing the price by 5%, while Tottenham have chosen to freeze their tickets.

The move from Chelsea is seen as a good gesture after a torrid season. The new owners have sacked two managers, Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, and the side are currently being led by Caretaker Manager Frank Lampard.

The Chelsea legend lost his first six matches in charge at the club this season but managed to get a 3-1 win over Bournemouth last weekend. The three points saw them secure safety and eased the nerves of a section of fans who feared relegation.

Chelsea in talks with Mauricio Pochettino and 2 players

The Blues are close to appointing Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager after agreeing a deal with the Argentine last week. The official announcement is expected this month and will kickstart the contract talks with several players, including Mason Mount and N’Golo Kante.

Both players are close to staying at the club next season, with The Sportzine sources reporting that Kante has agreed a 2-year deal with the option of a third. However, the club are waiting for Pochettino to have the final say before sealing the contract.

Mount has interest from Liverpool and Bayern Munich, while Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United are also keeping tabs on the midfielder. The Englishman looked set to leave in the summer, but positive talks with Todd Boehly has seen things take a turn.
